Aristocrat has donated $250,000 to support drought and bushfire relief efforts and help communities affected across New South Wales and Queensland. The donation will support the ‘Litres for Land’ initiative sponsored by Clubs NSW, along with bushfire relief efforts through the NSW Rural Fire Service.
Aristocrat’s Australia based employees have also raised funds and made additional donations to Foodbank and the Country Women’s Association, while the business has launched a matched giving program to amplify employees’ generosity.
Managing Director of Aristocrat Asia Pacific, David Ronson, said, “We know this is a challenging time for the communities affected by catastrophic bushfires and drought, particularly in New South Wales and Queensland where the majority of our people and customers live and work. We are proud to be partnering with a major customer organisation in Clubs NSW, and joining with our local employees and other charities, to make a contribution and help those affected.”
Aristocrat will also assist farming families in drought and those in bushfire affected areas through its Christmas food drive, run by employees through the company’s Aristocrat CARES community giving program.
